waves up to 20 feet. the rip current risk is high and off shore wind will continue to 15 miles per hour. monday for the holiday, more sunshine at 62 degrees and again that rip current risk remains on the high side. and speaking of high temperatures today, what a difference a day makes. for the first time this year, we saw 70 degrees across the bay area and that was in oakland. but it was 73 in santa cruz. above average in san jose. average high 57 in santa rosa but instead 65. and livermore and fairfield and concord are the cool spot at 60. currently we have 39 degrees already in livermore. we'll have to double check that. 39 also in santa rosa where the winds are still calm at this hour. we're dropping down to the freezing point again in livermore. in fact tonight's lows sub freezing in many inland locations and then we moderate gradually every single night, overnight. this is san jose with the clear
skies. we have the high surf advisory tomorrow until 4:00 p.m. cool and cloudy on wednesday with a slight chance of rain. right now, see this right here, this is a good indication that the jet stream is varying over the huge ridge of high pressure providing us with ample sunshine across the entire state. in fact we are talking about uniform numbers, from the mid- 60s to the interior section of the state. 40s in lake tahoe with the forecast of 1 above zero. 65 in monterey bay. getting a good feel for things here. everybody is pretty much in the 60s with this off shore flow. low 60s in pacific and the beaches to ocean beach and across the afterenus. 65 in mountain view. and an off shore wind up to late day and with the bit of a breeze, not too much out there so it is not a spare the air day tomorrow. but what i'm looking at is the five and the seven-day forecast because while we do cloud up on wednesday, and begin to cool
down, we'll have partial clearing on thursday. computer models are bringing us a better chance of rain showers moving back into the bay area forecast on friday and saturday and this again will kick open the door for more rainy daying in the month of february. until then we are still in this -- under the influence of high pressure. and i have to tell you, for mavericks, they consider a lot of things when they want to call this competition. they want big mountain waves, but they also want blue skies. they want it picture perfect because mid-week on wednesday, we're going to have equally as high surf and i'm also fearing higher surf by next sunday into monday. but it will be cloudy with the risk of rain in the forecast. they don't want that. they want it to look perfect picture on -- perfect picture on television. >> and you're going to deliver. >> we're coming through this time. and slapped with a $14,000 tax bill due all at once.

money, my change and a lot of people just offering to help a little bit as they can. >> so the clerk seemed surprised at the all-cash payment and they took it and after they spent a couple of hours counting it to make sure it was all there. well anyone fear the beard next year? and the warriors look to snap the losing streak in new orleans. that is next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
